About me


  • Currently, I am on a sabbatical year working on how to reduce socioeconomic inequalities in health.


  • I love reading and doing research on life course epidemiology and social determinants of health and to a lesser degree health services research, and quality of life (psychometrics).




  • I teach statistics and epidemiology to undergraduate and graduate students.
